The ancient convention of yoga is a beautiful and living tradition, which is much more than the physical practice of Asanas (postures). It is a comprehensive system integrating the body, breath, heart, and mind leading to self-development and to finding a deeper meaning in life.

The approach of the Peaceful Mind - The Ancient Yoga draws upon the ancient wisdom and healing practices of yoga and offers an integrated and harmonious practice of Asanas (postures), powerful Pranayama (conscious breathing), chanting, and meditation.

The instruction style encourages correct postural alignment, synchronization of breath, and movement and creating awareness of the mind-body-breath complex. The coaches are also passionate about the therapeutic aspects of this ancient system and work with individuals with specific needs by using props, therapy principles, and viniyoga.

Yoga is about appreciating one’s uniqueness (physically, mentally, and emotionally). It is about acknowledging and adapting to change, continually redefining one’s practice, and thereby moving towards self-awareness and transformation.

On this yoga retreat, your instructor is yogi Satendra. He likes to draw upon the ancient wisdom and healing system of yoga and teaches from a place of personal practice and experience. He encourages one to explore their own personal potential and the transformational potential of this ancient discipline.

Yogi Satendra has always been passionate about motivating people to achieve their fitness and health goals and inspiring them to lead healthy lifestyles. Apart from being a personal coach, he naturally gravitated towards the practice of yoga and his journey to the greatest learning of the self and optimal state of wellness began.

He expresses deep gratitude to his teachers and Gurus, his family, his students, each and everyone who made this journey possible, and to Life itself for the love, guidance, faith, and inspiration.

This yoga retreat is located in Goa, India. Goa has a long history of mesmerizing its guest with swaying palms and shimmering sand stretch giving an enchanting sight. The state has an extended 105 kilometers of Konkan coast which offers untouched beaches with no human habitation, few with basic amenities and some with all modern facilities. It has been able to please solitude seekers to party buffs.

One of the major cities of Goa is Margao and down south it starts with the line of beaches. The 20-kilometers stretch of silvery white sand from Majorda beach till the headland of Cabo de Rama is full of beaches. The more one moves towards the south, the lonelier the beaches are.

Palolem Beach is commonly known as the Paradise Beach. Its scenic beauty of sand facing blue water completely justifies the name. The splendid beauty of the beach forces everyone to lose the senses for an initial couple of minutes.

The beach is a stretch of about 1.5 - 1.6 kilometers long shoreline with crescent shaped and white sand which does not become hot even in summer. It's further bordered with a row of palm trees where one can rejuvenate from the hustle and bustle of city life.

This picturesque beach is also famous as Goa's idyllic beach where one can enjoy crashing and gobbling of blue water on the sand. This is a natural bay protected by high capes from both sides giving an idyllic coast with flat and shallow sandy sea bottom.

The unique feature of the beach is its rocky mood. It has plenty of small hills and rocky crags and one could enjoy the much-awaited family time in playing here. By the end of this, all the body pain can be healed with a splash of cool water. The beach is a perfect destination for people of all age groups as it is a beautiful blend of excitement and calm.

Sunset at Palolem is absolutely magnificent. It is more than a picture perfect view and this moment needs to absorb. The sultry air, warm water, peaceful beach and the slow process of sun meeting the water body can only be experienced.

From far, you can see a brownish object moving on the sea, however, when it comes closer you can see the fishermen returning home. This real life canvas will change a lot deep inside you.

    10 out of 10

    "I have just completed a week on a yoga retreat with Peaceful Mind -The Ancient Yoga, in the beautiful setting of Palolem, Goa, India. I quickly came to the understanding that yoga is not the mere practice of various Asanas (postures and poses) which I have followed for many years. It is a combination of such Asanas with Meditation, Mantra Chanting and Pranayama. My experience with sunrise and sunset Meditation and Pranayama ( breathing techniques) on Palolem Beach and midday Mantra Chanting led by my dynamic and spiritual coach left me invigorated yet blessed with an inner peace and a feeling of joy and fulfillment."

    "What a wonderful week with Peaceful Mind -The Ancient Yoga......one I shall always remember with thankfulness and appreciation for my new found self."

  • Review by Suzanne Phillips from New York, USA

    "After attending Peaceful Mind's yoga retreat, I set aside my old notions because somewhere yoga classes compel me to introspect the real strength of a person and it facilitate the true purpose of life. Learning at the center has great value in my life, some time I entered the mystical world. It was unique. Apart from this entire package, the reasonable staff members are modest and cooperative. I enjoyed it deeply - you opened a new domain of life. Its matchless and peerless experience kept on doing great things. Thanks with great regard."
